Chef Sarawut Phawakkarakun, as the name implies, hails from Thailand but he is classically trained and educated in the United States having first completed a Masters degree in “Food science and nutrition” and then to go on to attend the prestigious Culinary Institute of America in New York.  Chef Sarawut’s cooking is very much inspired by traditional Thai cooking.  His love for preparing and eating traditional Thai came from his childhood memories of cooking up great Thai feasts with his Aunt in the family kitchen.

Upon completing his formal training Chef Sarawut joined Nahm London where as an intern he got his first taste of contemporary Thai food served up in a modern upscale restaurant environment.  From London he returned to Thailand and joined Michelin starred Nahm Bangkok apprenticing under Chef David Thompson.

Today, continuing to pursue his career in cooking and hospitality, he is preparing to open his first restaurant in Thailand.
